    dog-sheep-agadir

    Isn't that an odd lovely pic ?
    Preparing the models the Moroccon dog must have had an sensual thought and, crossing its mind, performed its idea with the poor Berberian sheep. This was so funny so I had to take a pic. For now we can see how the idea started "sheep's eyes" ...

    Flying Goats In The Argan Tree

    goats-in-tree

    This is the famous Argan Tree (Argania Spinosa), not that well-known outside Morocco. You'll find this thorny tree in the South-westerly area, somewhere between Essaouira and Agadir.

    I heard the tree can grow older than the olive, no cultivation requiring. Because goats love the tender shoots of greenery between the thorns on the branches they climb the tree (that can reach heights of 8-10 metres), so the name of "flying goats" got famous. Yep, we've seen these goats, though the pic is from a post-card ...

    Help - Bolted Camel!

    camel-ride

    Reading about KASBAHS CAMEL TREK we all had to try riding a camel. Not a bad idea, however ... those animals, when very close, are huge with big eyes. And ofcourse not every tourist on his back feels nice, does it?

    Maybe the nice camel felt a bit of fear, or maybe he just wanted to have fun ... my riding-animal suddenly bolted. It just ran away with me on his back, and his driver at the back ... Wrong !!! I was the driver, though forgot to drive ... dummy moi!

    It was worth the fun, believe me. Even though you won't see me driving a KASBAHS CAMEL TREK anymore. Have to try riding an elephant in India, and maybe come back to Agadir for a desert trip by camel with Touaregs... do I?

    The Fes Festival Of World Sacred Music

    poster-fes-festival-morocco

    When I heard about the Fes Festival of World Sacred Music I didn't know this festival does bring musicians from all over the world to Fes, Moroccos spiritual city. Referring to a long tradition of tolerance the Kingdom of Morocco celebrates sacred music that wishes to unite people. Here the rhythm of the souks; an unforgettable experience.

    Fes is like a sanctuary, by the Sufis (Muslim mystics) named Zawia (sanctuary). I do hope to join this rather unknown to outsiders event once ... (last event was in Juin 2005)

    Go & See Morocco

    by RoyJava Updated Jul 16, 2005

    poster-morocco

    From the outside looking in, Morocco has inspired all sorts of artists. Like the French Neo-Baroque artist Eugene Delacroix showed his work after a visit in 1830. Also fashion-designer Yves Saint Laurent loves Morocco, owns a palace-like building and some later Hollywood got embraced with Morocco-mania.

    Loved the movie Morocco with leading part lady Marlene Dietrich, followed by Casablanca in 1942. And for sure you do remember Lawrence of Arabia with Peter O'Toole? So if you missed all of the enjoys of Morocco,... go and see the movie MOROCCO
    ... thanks Marlene!

    ZAGORA & DESERT

    by RoyJava Updated Jul 16, 2005

    desert-royjava-morocco

    Ofcourse we had to reach for the desert. So we headed for Zagora, "protected" by a characteristic mountain top. Nope, desert isn't too visible when in town, so walk to its border, not that far, and meet desert of Zagora, hottest place in Morocco!

    Zagora differs not that much from any other place in the South of Morocco, just be prepared for heat, blazing sun and blowing sand. So don't mind me, RoyJava, reaching for the ocean ???
    pffffff
